The actor has since thanked his fans on Twitter for their concern.
'Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about.'
'I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you.'

He says he's decided not to press any charges.
'Update: A lot of you have asked, but I’m not pressing charges.'
'I hope this was a wake-up call, and he gets his life on the right track.'

And if you have to share the video (I get it), pick a blurry one without whatever he was yelling so he doesn’t get the spotlight.
